I found this video of Lizanne. It is when she appeared as a contestant in short-running television program "The Name's The Same". Dated February 21st, 1955.

Talking Glistening Seas

Oh Sensibility was Lizzy fun to be around!!

was she more outgoing that Pss Grace? What illnesses did she have? Did she enjoy parties and did she visit Pss. Grace when she was married to Ranier! Sounds like she was a mah-velous aunt indeed.

Many thanks, Nathalie Cox, for finding the YouTube clip of Lizanne.

I think she could have been competition for Grace, certainly in the "looks" department, and in terms of charme and grace.

Well, I would agree that she was definitely pretty. Not a bad look group of kids by any means. But I think she was a little harsher in looks than Grace. Grace had an etheral beauty. Its like you have one sister who is pretty and talented (Solange Knowles) but the other sister takes it off the charts (Beyonce), and there is really no comparison.

I don't remember where I read it, but it seems that Lizanne died of cancer.

I think that Lizanne Kelly was indeed pretty if not beautiful, as for Grace being better looking let's not forget that Grace was a movie star and she had a wide array of makeup artists, hairdressers, designers etc. to make her look always flawless and gorgeous.....
Lizanne was a " normal" person at the end of the day not a star.

Beautiful pics! I really like the first one. You can definitely tell they are sisters. The Kelly family was very good looking.

It was described in a biography of Grace (probably the one by Lacey) that all the Kellys were attractive and striking, with great bone structure and perfect teeth. However, Grace was the only one who had that perfect combination of her father's athletic build and her mother's blonde Nordic looks that made her the ethereal beauty.

I agree...makes no sense at all. Unless it's a language barrier thing which could be if she is a relative on the Majer's side and still lives in Europe.

Actually, it was a sad day moreso for the KELLY Family. Lizanne was the last of the matriarchs and the last of the original 4. The Kelly family is very close...they were ALL in attendance at the funeral.

As to the "girls" - who knows what other commitments they may have had?

Albert is the one who regularly visits the US and maintains family contacts. He has always come across to me as an American, as oposed to his "mediterranean" sisters.
Renata, I am trying to figure out....how you know this? Were you at the Funeral that it struck you as a 'normal' family funeral? Having been at Lizanne's funeral myself, I would agree with some of that in the papparazzi was quite respectful. There are very good reasons that Caroline and Steph were NOT in attendance. While they don't visit the US often, they do maintain contact with certain members of the family in Philly. Please give some explanation of who you are....I'm intrigued. I'm also in awe in amazement that so many people out there are actually discussing this topic.

in connection to other comments

I just want to clarify some things. I think you have misinterpreted my comments.

First, my attitude on this forum is totally friendly, in fact I like to make friends here with whom sharing my interest in history and monarchies.

My monarchy (although it is only a prince) is Monaco, and I have special love for Grace Kelly.

I am neither cousin, nor niece Grace, I am simply a distant relative. Ive never met Grimaldis. When my grandmother died I lost all connection with my relatives in the United States. My father is Spanish and my mother borned in Richmond, later she moved to Philadelphia (my mother worked there until she married my father, and later moved to Madrid).

I was fortunate to meeting Grace two times, but I was very young and I could not value the significance of that. As for Lizanne, I met and dined with her twice. If at first she was surprised to see hize was to hide, I do not like to boast in a public place such as this one. I am a very discreet, yet I like talking to you and wanted to share this small privilege.

And finally, I still believe that the family should be united at the funeral, both in Europe and America, and the fact that I do not think paparazzi are justification, is simply an annoyance to which they are more than used, " I Am I wrong? However I perfectly respect the opinion of those who think differently, as I said I've just done a valorativoy subjective opinion, I never wanted to be arrogant.

Otherwise, I hope to continue discussing issues related to the Grimaldi family and much longer if I can get you the photos show.

A lot of love,
Lily.

Does anyone know about the Margaret Katherine Majer family in Mexico? I have heard that some of Grace Kelly's mother's family emigrated from Germany to Mexico first, then to America?

There arent any "Majer" surname registrered in Mexico City. However therere some "mayer". I think it could be derivated from J to Y.

There is another spelling - "Maier", a simplification of Majer, with another version - Meyer / Meier. It's a job title: head farmer.

Familie Maier, Meier Mayer, Meyer

There's no dates.

Kelly relatives in Mexico

Interesting, where did you hear that? Do you think there are still descendants or relations in Mexico? As others have said, there are names very close to that such as Maier, Meier, Mayer, etc. (Funnily enough that was one of Rainier III's Mexican grandmother's surname: de la Torre y Mier)

I found an 'Elsica Majer' in some Mexican records, but she may or may not be related. And another "H Majer" born in 1855 in Mexico... ?!

Anyway, it would be fun to find out!

Does anybody can give more information about Graces mother? Do you know more about her? Its difficult to find information and photos about her single years.

And does anybody know who spend summers in their Ocean City house? Is it rented?

Thanks!
lily.

Please, take a look to Chris Levine, the Kelly relative - Lizannes grandson. And thiss Ginna, her sister. She seems to Grace.

Lilly, It is hard to find info about Grace's mother prior to her marriage to Grace's father. Her mother was a model and an athlete. Any news articles about her were in magazines, that are now hard to find. As for the Ocean City home, I think that it was eventually sold.
